Hi, I too was diagnosed with Stage 2B cervical cancer 3 1/2 years ago. . They also told me that to keep my vagina healthy that intercourse 2 or 3 times a week was beneficial. I asked if they could prescribe a man for that purpose!! (I am divorced and don't have a partner) They gave me a dialator, and Replens and KY Gel to use to keep the lining of my uterus supple. It must be healthy so that the cervix is visible and scar tissue doesn't obscure it for observation. I have all my reproductive organs too. It was the 2 rounds of internal radiation that was so seriously damaging. I have not had sex since, although the Drs. have told me that a normal, active, sex life is encouraged, just for a womans' general health. They have told me that I must use lubrication and the dialator for the rest of my life. Has anyone else out there had a solution to the intimacy changes??
